Tough ask for Bilbao to overcome Simeone’s record

” One of the most memorable clashes between the two teams since Simeone has been in-charge was in the 2012 Europa League final when Atletico won 3-0 in Bucharest.”
Bilbao (Spain), May 1(IANS): Spanish football club Atletico Madrid’s manager Diego Simeone has become a big problem for Athletic Bilbao, which lost eight ties out of nine against the ‘Rojiblancos’ since the Argentine started coaching them in December 2011.

Bilbao will be hosted by Atletico at the Vicente Calderon on Saturday in La Liga, hoping to put an end to Simeone’s challenge, reports Efe.

One of the most memorable clashes between the two teams since Simeone has been in-charge was in the 2012 Europa League final when Atletico won 3-0 in Bucharest.

Bilbao’s only win against Simeone was in the 2012-2013, with a thrashing 3-0 triumph at the San Mams.
